"Security Theater"

by Tom Bozzo

To Oscar, I say: damn straight. (In the event you are not a regular Columnist Manifesto reader, click through and read the whole thing. NOW!!)

The quote Oscar excerpts could use some annotation:
"A lot of people will be shocked at the billions of dollars we've spent and the results they're going to see, which confirm previous examinations of the Soviet-style screening system we've [the Bush administration and Republican-led Congresses] put in place [and took credit for, in painting the Democrats as weak on terrorism issues in the 2002 midterm elections]," Rep. John Mica, R-Florida, told The Associated Press on Friday.
It is refreshing, though, to see some acknowledgment of what some of us have long suspected: that portions of the Bush executive branch are run like a Soviet-style bureaucracy.
